Get a Pentium G3258 and an Asus H81 board instead.

No it won't fit and it's better. Why exactly don't you like that board? Unless you're getting a better cpu or up your budget there isn't a reason to get a Z series board.

They have different h81 board models. The one I typically recommend has 1 pcie 3 16x and 3 pcie 1x. That's enough to put a gpu and 2 more expansion cards like a wireless card or raid card. An h81 board (the Asus E model) will allow over clocking of the g3358 unlike any i3. If you insist on a Z series board then get the ASRock Z97 Anniversary otherwise save some cash and get a better psu or 8GB of RAM.
